MineSAFE Industry Day - Participation Rules
SAFETY
There will be 3 Category of awards.

The level of management appointment for the breakdown of data of mines participating in any of the Safety Awards is a MHSA appointment 3.1(a) or a 4.1 appointee.

The following are the mine/commodity groupings for the safety awards:
· Gold Mines
· Platinum Mines
· Coal Mines
· Diamond Mines
· Base Metal Mines
· Process Plants
· Contractors

The type of safety awards:
Category 1:
Year on Year "Total Injury Frequency Rate (TIFR) Improvement".
- Statistics reporting period 1 July-30June for the last 3 years.
- The progressive TIFR number on the closing date for the 12 months is used. (Require:
  The total Hours worked in the year per month for the last 3 years. Total injuries in the
  year per month for the last 3 years).
- Year 1=1 July 2012 -30June 2013.
- Year 2=1 July 2013-30June 2014.
- Year3=1 July 2014 -30June 2015.

Category 2:
- "Best in Class TIFR" (1st,2nd and 3rd place). The lowest progressive TIFR for the
   reporting period, 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015.
- The same format of data as for Category 1. But in this case the TIFR include all injuries
   that was reported, including dressing cases. Thus the grand total of all injuries.
   International company's report TIFR on the ICMM rule and exclude Dressing cases in their
   TIFR. Thus to ensure we compare like with like, it is any injury reported by any person,
   make no difference how small.

Category 3:
A category called "Significant Safety Achievements". In this category we look at the mine's situation on the closing date 30 June 2015:
- Progressive fatality free shifts on the closing day- 30 June 2015.
- If a fatality occurred in the period 1 July 2014-30 June 2015, the progressive Fatality free
  shifts on that day must be submitted.
- For mines that are not having fatal accidents, "Progressive Injury Free Days"- on the
  submission day how many injury free days did you have for the period:
- The injury free days are calendar days. Thus in a year the maximum injury free days
  can be 365 days.
- Year 1=1 July 2012 -30June 2013.
- Year 2=1 July 2013-30June 2014.
- Year3=1 July 2014 -30June 2015.
